      Well... you'll have to subscribe to Nayatels Optimus add-on. It allows you to have NAT Type 2 and optimised latency. However it costs 150 rs per month extra to your normal bill.

      Without Optimus, you'll get NAT Type 3 on Nayatel since they use carrier grade NAT which means IP addresses are shared.

      I used to get 10mbps upload but for the past few weeks, I've been getting just 1mbps. PTCL claims it's a back end problem that magically only affects MY phone number.
      Was facing the exact same issue. I was getting 3 Mbps down and normal upload speed. It was only affecting me and no one else.

      And because I'm the only one complaining, they keep shafting me.
      Typical PTCL. Unless they have a mob of angry customers, there's no incentive for them to fix it.

      Thanks I'll give Nayatel a call tomorrow and make sure to tell them I need NAT Type 2 for gaming so I can get the add on. It's slightly more expensive than PTCL and the lack of unlimited downloads bothers me a little but I think I can live with working around a data cap and would prefer that to PTCL's constant nonsense. There's no end to their stupidity.

      Well , there is one more alternative which is kind of miss or hit Fiberlink . I'm using fiberlink 250mb for quit sometime almost 3months. I have to say it is best for online gaming ping is stable and download speed is awesome but there are few down sides which you need to deal . fiberlink is not easy to get and customer support is really pathetic.Now its your choice.

      No thanks. I already get pathetic service for free from PTCL. I don't have an issue with my download speed. I have an issue with them not resolving problems.

      Well, from what I've read and with my own perceptions of PTCL (cause I have their fiber connection at my home):

      Fiberlink will (one year) install the connection. If there's an issue, they will (one fine day, in another year) come to fix it. That's how bad.

      With PTCL, replace "one year" with "one month".

      I'm not even an engineer and I diagnose 99% of my internet problems correctly before PTCL gets around to doing anything. It takes them one week to arrive to the same conclusions that I told them about in the first place. On top of that, they hear a female voice and they start behaving like they've never heard a female gamer before who at least has a basic understanding of what the hell she's talking about. I'm no expert but I know my way around things enough than I diagnose problems.

      Every single friend of mine recommended Nayatel after I uploaded a status on FB yesterday asking for ISP recommendations. Hopefully I will switch after Eid.

      telenor and zong now both are getting their internet from wateen . Telenor behaves good only because their system is not as congested as zong network.

      Is that your personal experience with Fiberlink? I've been using it for 7-8 months now in Rawalpindi. Installation took 30 days as promised, and every issue I've had has taken at most 24 hours to resolve.
      Remember there are no stupid questions, just stupid people.
